No, I have not encountered these before. I guess if you prefer a little more bottom, than what is actually on the recording, then these are made for the bass lover.
That really sounds good.My audio buddy tried a pair of the Dr. Dre the rapper headphones and he said they were VERY pass heavy made his brain feel like it was rattling around in his head. :rofl: While the Sony's are not that bass heavy, I am not sure how exaggerated the bass really is. On most music they seem to be well balanced but capable of going a lot lower than a typical headphone. It would be interesting to get a second opinion on them.
Yes, even here in NY, its hard, especially with the specialty high end stores closing, its rare to find a store where the Sennheiser HD650/600s, AKG 701s, and the Beyerdynamics DT880s are available for audition.Yeah, they are a little priocey, but there are some stores where you can audition them. For example, I think Guitar Center has the Senns on display sometimes.
The bassiest headphones I've heard are (Yeah, flame me) Beats by Monster Cable. Mids and highs on the monster sucked and could not compare to similarly priced Senneheisers. Have you any experience with Beats? How do these Sony's compare?
